Five more Regimental Sergeant Majors (RSMs), now on the verge of their retirement on Tuesday (13) had the privilege of receiving appreciation and interacting with their Head of the organization, Commander of the Army, Lieutenant General Mahesh Senanayake inside the Commander's office.
Well appreciative of their years of service to the Army, particularly in the field of fighting, logistics and administration, Lieutenant General Mahesh Senanayake spoke highly of their dedicated services to the organization as the bane of the Army and commended them, awarding special certificates of appreciation.
During the brief meeting, the Commander inquired into their planned future prospects and also the past experiences that could be used as potential talents in future. Towards the end of the interaction, the Commander extended his warm wishes to them and their family members and expressed the hope that they would not be a burden to the country even after retirement.
Those retiring thanked the Army Chief for his concern towards them after inviting them to his office itself as it would serve a life-time memory for them which they have not even dreamt of earlier while serving the Army.
